Mmm… deep fried foods. They bring me back to when I worked at a sports bar and would throw those delectable, indulgent treats into the fryer so I could snarf them down in between running around. Among my favorites were cheddar cheese cubes, jalapeño poppers, mozzarella sticks, and chicken strips. All of which I slathered in ranch dressing. I’m so excited to report that I’ve mastered the best jalapeño poppers recipe with cream cheese and cheddar so I can have them anytime I want. Plus, I found THE ranch dressing. This post was made possible by iConnect and Litehouse Foods. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
Best Jalapeno Poppers Recipe with Cream Cheese …
… AND cheddar AND the super secret ingredient: Litehouse Avocado Ranch with Bacon dressing.
The best part about this recipe is you can make dozens of these and freeze them so you have them on hand all the time. Unexpected game night at your place? No big deal. Once frozen, you can simply bake them to perfection.
Arguably, the most important ingredient is the ranch dressing. Because it is used literally inside and out of this recipe, its role is crucial. My absolute go-to is the Litehouse line of ranch dressings. For this recipe I used the Lithouse Avocado Ranch with Bacon, but Homestyle Ranch or Jalapeño Ranch would be perfect too.
These dressings can be found in the refrigerated section of local Chicago supermarkets. Litehouse believes that cold, glass-bottled dressing is a better, more fresh-tasting way to enjoy your favorite dips and dressings. I happen to whole heartedly agree. Each of their dressings is far better than those found at room temperature. The flavor is fresher and, I don’t know if this makes sense, but I swear it just tastes real-er.
Perhaps that’s because Litehouse employee-owners make refrigerated dressings that are developed in cold environments, shipped in refrigerated trucks, and sold in the refrigerated produce section. I LOVE when employees are also a part owners of the entire company–definitely makes quality end product. They really live up to their slogan: Families Making Food for Families.
Okay, I’ll shut up about how obsessed I am with ranch…
